Janie Z Speaks for ME!

I’m Janie Zimmerman, and I am running for House of Delegates District 60. If you live in Charlotte, Prince Edward, Halifax, or the SE part of Campbell County, I’m your candidate!


I was born at Andrews Air Force Base while my dad was serving in the Vietnam War, so I wholly support and understand veterans, their families, and the challenges they face. My mom grew up in a rural part of the Texas panhandle, and now I return to my Southern roots by living in rural Virginia.

I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember, and have been a teacher for almost 30 years. My favorite kids to teach are the students that other schools have most likely forgotten or sent away to alternative placements because they don’t fit the so called normal expectations in a general classroom. I am currently a teacher at a juvenile detention center in Prince Edward County. I am excited to work with these students because it is so rewarding to watch them blossom with just a little care and attention. When these troubled students succeed, they really succeed. When rural Virginia gets the attention it deserves, it can really succeed as well. Just as I speak up for my students, a vote for me will be a vote to speak up for the unique needs of Rural Virginia.


Rural Virginia deserves to be heard. All you need is a voice.

The Issues

My Mission

My mission is to speak up for Rural Virginia where there hasn’t been a strong voice in the past. Living in Charlotte County has shown me the specific needs of a rural area such as Southern Virginia.
